Got your postage Steph. Thanks so much, hun but you really shouldn't have sent the extra stamps you know. I'm very grateful though. Smile

Maria, your lovely book arrived too. I was going to do that exact theme, so glad I changed my mind now. Mr Green

As for fixing mine, I think I'll have to make a new cover. I'd done one with a spine, but the bottom half of the book is too thick and it doesn't close properly. Only problem is, I only had one sheet of the paper I'd used. Crying or Very sad

aww glad it arrived and its ok. I was a bit worried you would get rather alot of that theme. I was limited as I too have very little double sided paper.

Mine is finished. Spent all afternoon and evening making it, it went better then the last one I tried to make. But last time I used double sided card and now I can see it was obviously too thick and caused all sorts of problems. It was good to make something I enjoyed doing rather then something I had to do.

Mine is probably a bit different to what you're expecting for a theme Lorraine, so if need be you can send it back to me as my swap as I love it I'll post it next week.

Well, this damned thing has been a nightmare!!!!! I should have stuck to the basic folded one, lol.

My first cover didn't fit, so I made another one. That didn't fit properly either. I liked the second one and was determined to use it, so had to come up with a plan. Decided to make some inners.....3 before I got it right. Honestly, I don't know what was wrong, I've made shed loads of these things before, lol.

Anyway, it's finished but it's not perfect so I'm not 100% happy but I'm sure it'll do.

Of course it will. Anything from you will do.......definately from me, I always love seeing your creations.

lorraine i found a video on youtube where someone made this same book with a cover.

For the cover,she measured a piece of cardstock at 4-1/4 x 7. You will score this at the 3-1/4, 3-1/2 and 3-3/4 marks to form the cover. The middle score (3-1/2) gets folded inward or valley fold, the other scores go up in a mountain fold. hope this helpsl

Helen, Kim and Sue. Yours have all arrived. Mr Green

Helen, gorgeous. Lovely, lovely theme.

Sue, can't believe you've never seen one of these before. You've done a smashing job and the ribbon is lovely, thank you.

Kim, yours is sooooooooo pretty. Have to admit it took me about ten minutes to figure out how to open it, lol. I practically took it to pieces before I realised. Doh!!! Thanks for the other book boxes. Will make a fabulous set with my large one.Mr Green
